got out to vote. the right thing happened. we had a big election day. >> boy did they ever in florida. that was darlene jones from wftv trying to get an answer from rick scott about this. voters stuck in line for eight hours and more in polling places around the state of florida after governor scott cut the days for early voting and refused to add any of them back when the lines were that long. he says it all worked fine. the right thing happened. florida officials say the lines pop upmostly in big cities with diverse population. they say that as if that's self-explanatory in terms of why you have long lines. but florida officials have you been to l.a.? really big city. we have been getting letters from people who vote in california where they opened tons and tons of polling places that serve much smaller groups of voters than the way you dole with it in florida. in california they vote at the nep tune society. they vote in their neighbor's garage. they voted at headquarters of the venice beach lifeguards. californians do not do is stand in line and wait eight hours to vote. after the
of cuban voters in florida. one of the polls showed that the republicans lost the cuban vote, 49-47. now, that is a stunner for us as a party. that's always been a community that has shown great strength and support for the republican party. but have you a solution now that you write about in your column today. tell us about that? >> well, i do think on the cuban issue, this has to do with generational change among the population, the first generation that actually experienced castroism, was fiercely anti-communist and that's natural. a second generation that grew up in america, in freedom and only heard stories about it might be less so, so the softer policy of democrats might appeal to them. but the large issue is the hispanic vote, of which the republicans got only 27%. i think they are a natural constituency for the conservative party. they're immigrants, they are striving, catholic, religious. they are socially conservative. they ought to be on our side. the real problem is the question of immigration, legal and illegal. and i do think that it's time -- i did not have an epiphany ov
, in florida, virginia, less so in colorado. the black population is fairly small. nevada, definitely. the right in the country and especially the ultraconservatives in the republican party had pushed african-americans and hispanics together. they have a politics where sort of a nasty braggadocio, if you watch the primaries, where you have to be slashed and burn in how you attack your enemies, that very much does not go over with hispanics. some of the things that were said -- i have spoken to a well known latino pollster about this. he said a white person has friends and extended family -- that number is 8. a hispanic person has that number at about 50. if you are a slash and burn person, that is your style, you are not going to go over well with latinos. african americans and latinos have been pushed together. if you look at it in class terms, african-americans, the largest proportion of african americans and latinos are working class and have similar interests in terms of government. >> any additional questions? >> you were talking about the turnout during the midterms. you did no
that and does not decide to go for the budget, it will probably be bill nelson from florida who just won reelection. but here is my conspiracy- minded way is going on -- let's say ron wind and decided he really wanted budget and not energy, who would be chairman? mary landrieu -- a complete nightmare for the democrats -- coming from an oil-producing state she is really not in line with most of the party on the issues. i had a conversation with a democratic aide not to long ago where i basically said, so, you guys will do everything you can to make sure it does not happen, right? even if patty murray decides not to take budget, you r will ron widen stay there -- their answer was, we do not think we will get to that point. which is estimated will do everything they can to prevent mary landrieu from taking the gavel. but she is close. and any other on the republican side. is the republican leadership wincing at the thought about new ranking republican members doing damage to the agenda? chuck grassley, installed judiciary, and orrin hatch? >> i think both of them have established their bona
people to go to these domains and donate the money. >> reporter: from his home in jacksonville, florida, he's already tracked more than a thousand internet domains with the words sandy or relief. some registered early but most as soon as the forecast predicted this would be a killer storm. sites that pop up like this one registered in north carolina, urging people to donate to help victims in jamaica, linking the would-be donor to a paypal account. >> i couldn't find what was behind it. you can check registered the domaining, and there is this tool that tells you who registered the domaining. let's just look this up here and see what comes back. it's here, a person in north carolina that hasn't registered, but whether or not that's real, who knows. >> reporter: we checked. the charity is not registered with the state of north carolina as the law requires. some sites are even more blatant. personal appeals on crowd sourcing sites, creating a web page just asking for money. on this site called indy go go, there were 32 pages for pleas for cash. we headed -- we left the city and headed sou
